President Trump to Sign Executive Order on Social Media Thursday

President Trump is set to sign an executive order "pertaining to social media" on Thursday, White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany told reporters Wednesday.
She did not offer any further details.
The announcement follows a multiday feud between the president and Twitter.
The social media giant applied for the first time an informational label to one of the president's tweets on Tuesday.
The warning, urging users to "get the facts about mail-in ballots," was attached to two posts in which Trump railed against mail-in voting in California, claiming without evidence that the practice is full of fraud.
"These Tweets contain potentially misleading information about voting processes and have been labeled to provide additional context around mail-in ballots," a spokesperson for the social media platform told The Hill.

Trump and his supporters quickly pounced on the fact check, accusing the company of bias against conservatives.
Trump accused Twitter of "stifling FREE SPEECH" and then threatened to “close” social media platforms in tweets Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.
He later vowed to take “Big action” against Twitter.
